The 2020 NFL season is less than a week away and whilst every team has aspirations of getting to the Super Bowl, only two of them will achieve that dream. Here are four teams that have to be in ‘win now’ mode.
With rookie mini-camps cancelled and preseason effectively out of the window, there has never been a tougher time to be a rookie in the NFL. Gone are the preamble games where previous unknown stars are given the platform to impress, absent are the moments to impress the coaching staff when the limelight shines.
For seemingly the last time, both the AFC and NFC conferences sent six teams apiece to the post season in the 2019-20 season. As of the 2020-2021 campaign, the NFL playoffs will expand to 14 teams, one extra from each conference, as per the new collective bargaining agreement.
Former number one overall pick Jameis Winston is currently slated to hit free agency in lieu of an offer from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Where could the former Alabama quarterback end up this offseason?
Unfortunately for fans around the world the 100th season of the NFL has come to an end and what a season it was. It’s now time for a pivotal offseason.
The 2019 season however, was a strange one for the Steelers as it could be seen as both a win and a loss. After opening up against the defending champions New England Patriots and getting absolutely blown away, they then went into week two and lost their future hall of fame quarterback for the season due to an elbow injury.
The Philadelphia Eagles have been searching around for a new offensive coordinator after scoring a mere nine points in their wild card game against the Seattle Seahawks on January 4.

Pittsburgh Steelers’ head coach Mike Tomlin’s season couldn’t have got off to a worse start this year. In the season opener, the team lost longtime franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the season in a defeat to the New England Patriots. They then proceeded to drop the following two games to the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.
The half term results are out for this year's rookie class. As with every year some have excelled, whilst others risk being held back.
What a rollercoaster of a week it’s been for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team fell to 0-2 after being defeated by the Seattle Seahawks at home, losing starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the process. Mason Rudolph, meanwhile, proved to a solid replacement for the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
So, the Antonio Brown experiment is over in Oakland. It's fair to say that it really didn't start, but that only serves to make it sound like nothing happened in the six turmoil filled months he was with the Raiders.
Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers are eager for a fresh start and in a matter of a few days they’ll launch their 2019 campaign against the defending champions, New England Patriots, in primetime Sunday Night Football.
For a franchise that prides itself upon being steady and without drama, the 2018 version of the Pittsburgh Steelers was far from the norm.
Ben Roethlisberger’s Steelers faced off against Kurt Warner’s underdog Cardinals in a match up for the ages. This for me ranks as one of the very best Super Bowls, filled with interesting narratives, wonderful plays and a tremendous finish. This review will take a step back to February 1st 2009 and address what could have been for the plucky Cards.
